10-4 on the speedo gear , mine needs replacing too
say motupaiki do you have a overheat problem with your aircooled xr? I have heard the back cylinder can over heat. that is a great bike, if ya ever want to sell it post it here on Advrider, maybe I could sneak it back in luggage
Modrover sounds like you are looking for the same type TA as me, keep the stocker and get another hard core version. I would like to find out more how Dave bertrams was put together ( i posted photo earlier) I do not know him, just found the photo, caption says its a CR 500 frame mod., with all the chopper builders around you would think it would be possible to find someone to do the mod , weather it would be in reason is another matter. hhhhhmmmm, a Water cooled bike that has rad's in place.
could be a fun winter project
